I've always been able to go to him,
We're trying to make the best of a very difficult situation, ... With what Mike's meant to this franchise for many years, he deserves it.
[Still, Saturday's announcement was something of a surprise only because Nelson had said he was going to stay through next year.] I'm in my last years as a coach, ... I'm going to retire. I have this one and one more [year on my contract]. I expect to coach til the end. I want Avery to get some expe
When they key on one player like that, and double-team him and not allow him to [move], that means there are openings for other players.
I've still got a year left on my contract, and I intend to be back next year to coach.
It's been difficult to get any continuity offensively. Our defense is definitely better. You can throw a bunch of new guys together and have a better chance to play defense collectively, maybe because of timing or whatever. But we don't know who we are offensively yet.
We saved a million bucks. My owner [Ross Perot Jr.] was real happy about that.
I'm the most unracist person around.
We would play a team that's one hour away 300 miles away from home. That would be fun.
I'm not a water guy.
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential.
It's just going to take a while. It doesn't matter how good he is.
I am proud of our team and their hard work. Stone played a great game. We were kind of fortunate,
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential. We're capable of doing that.
The only problem for Michael Finley as a player is that he cares too much. He takes losses too hard.
The airport isn't in the way. It is an asset. Just consider: Could things go somewhere else.
I never coached anyone going to Vanderbilt. We're a Blue Ribbon-awarded high school, recognized by the president. It's a testament to our school, and Massey helped lead the way.
Turnovers down the stretch hurt us. Then Bobby Jackson went crazy on us.
The fans aren't here, ... There's a good chance your parents aren't here because they are taking care of what they need to do. That's all the more reason to go and play like you need to.
He just needs a lot of information and he'll get that over the next year or two. You'll really find out exactly what you have probably in two years.
We wanted to say Michael was a superstar, but he really wasn't,
When he sits down, his ears pop
The next step to his being a great player is to add the pass to his beautiful game,
This is the best team in basketball, ... They have a better team than the L.A. Lakers.
I love Maui.
I'm a lot of things, but none of them are great.
I feel sad about it,
Scotty, I couldn't take a dime from you. He said he was the luckiest man in the world. I'm in a position to help people. You don't know how gratifying it is to see somebody's dreams come true. I know a lot of people and I can help Tyler and I don't want a dime. He said someday I want him to give bac
Really, throughout my career, what I've done is taken teams with bad records and with every situation I've made them better.
Where ever the Mavericks are today, we owe it to Michael Finley. He was the one guy who stayed when we were a terrible team. He stayed and fought the fight.
